NEW MUSIC AND CONCERT PREMIERE 2024

We are thoroughly happy to announce that Karl Bartos's new composition "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" will premiere at the Alte Oper Frankfurt on 17 February 2024.
For almost twenty years, Karl has been fascinated by the first psychothriller in film history, "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" (1920), tailoring an aptly experimental sound outfit to suit this experimental silent movie classic. To do so, he has created not only an entirely new continuous soundscape to match the moving images, but also a distinct musical score. He uses the timeless sound of the symphony orchestra, though synthetically produced and electronically modulated.
This extraordinary performance melds the film, digitally restored in 4K by the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Foundation, with sounds and music layered live on stage in perfect synch by Karl and his colleague Mathias Black.
Live performances in 2024 will be accomplished by a vinyl und blue-ray release.

"One of the most revered iconic master-pieces in cinema history, Robert Wiene’s The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari shook filmgoers worldwide and changed the direction of the art form."
